#BIOWC16: An Overview of the Synthetic Biology Track

BIO World Congress

Design. Build. Test. Learn. That has been the mantra for companies presenting in the Synthetic Biology track at the 13th annual BIO World Congress on Industrial Biotechnology. Synthetic biology is an extension of the continuum of innovation in genetic engineering. This emerging field of research, development and commercialization of new biotechnology products applies the rigor of traditional engineering and computer science to life science applications. One of the first sessions of the World Congress adopted Read More >

Tools in the 21st Century Tool Box: “Hot Science” on GE Animals

Today’s program at the 7th Transgenic Animal Research Conference in Tahoe, Calif., hit the “hot science”, as one researcher from Germany noted during lunch. The research on genetically engineered (GE) animals will reap huge dividends in societal benefits to solve the world’s most pressing challenges. I was particularly impressed by the Chinese researchers from State Key Lab of Agrobiotechnology, China Agricultural University, Beijing. In 2001 they began studying six different genes in GE cattle which Read More >
